	The default checker that is bundled will be lightproof this is
primarily due to the choice of Java for LanguageTool - which gives a
-very- substantial performance hit of the order of a handful of seconds
of non-responsive-ness, as you start typing / interacting with a new
libreoffice process the first time after load. Lightproof is written in
python which we bundle, and is reasonably fast to bootstrap.
